New Toys (but no pictures! ARGH!)

I have the best knitting group in the world. My friends in my knitting group gave me a ball winder and a swift fashioned from recycled walnut furniture as a housewarming present. I would love to show you pictures, but my husband has the camera at the moment. I promise I will post some pictures tomorrow. I can't wait to unpack my stash and unwind many skeins!
